The project uses 3d-printed piezoelectric cells applied to each trolley pole, trolley bus elevation, tire and overhead wire. Aluminum consolidated carbon nanotubes , which increase the heat and electrical conductivity of the material embedded within the structure, are combined with the steel frame, concrete-clad helix. The aluminum frames are printed with piezoelectric crystals that generate electricity from the air flow and pressure exerted from the trolleybus and its overhead wire movement. Related: Margot Krasojevic’s solar-powered sand turbine hotel aims to stop the spread of the Gobi Desert Elevated walls further increase the vibration of the trolley-poles, augmented by wind and rain. These vibrations amplify the the piezoelectric cell displacements which, in turn, generate energy. The design will act as an electrical amplifier, and will provide street lighting and WiFi access to immediate neighborhoods. Users will also be able to use the system to power their gadgets and smart cars , while the electric current stimulates root growth in plants. + Margot Krasojevic

Comments Off on The Victorian Station Project Proposes a Green Park Renovation of an Aged London Train Station

Nelly Fuentes and Ian M. Ellis proposed a lush green renovation of London’s antiquated Victoria Station for London’s recent Green Infrastructure Ideas Competition . Hosted by the Garden Museum, the Landscape Institute, and the Mayor of London, the High Line-inspired competition sought to find innovative ways to integrate green spaces into the British Capital. Ellis and Fuentes proposal not only renews Victoria Station, but connects woodlands, grasslands and marshlands along the River Thames to the transit hub, introducing low-impact techniques for water management so as to protect urban ecosystems, establish new wildlife habitats and encourage exploration of the city. + Ian M.

Comments Off on NASA Designs Ironman-like Robotic Exoskeleton For Astronauts And Earthlings

Ironman kicks ass. And not just because that’s Robert Downey Jr. inside. The idea of an impermeable exoskeleton has fascinated humans since medieval knights designed the first metal armor. Now, NASA is working on a real-life version of Ironman’s fictional suit called the “X1″ that could help keep astronauts healthier in space, and make it possible for paraplegics to walk on Earth.
